    AIR - Search PDF Content

    Derek J Entringer
      I've been searching high and low for ideas on how to fulfill a client requirement of being able to search a directory, or multiple directories of PDF files using keywords thru a flex interface. The search would have to be able to look thru the content of the PDF's, as well as the titles.

      Does anyone know if there are any components available to accomplish this, or if Flex even has the capability?

      I guess that there would always be the option to integrate a 3rd party indexing tool, but I don't want to make the end users install 3rd party apps just to use a search feature. I'd consider this, but I find it hard to believe that pdf content isn't somehow accessible.

      Any ideas?

      The final product will be an AIR file, with access to the pdf files within the applications build or local desktop.
